New Air Canada Flights Welcomed by Canadian Investors and Retirees in Belize

Canadian retirees, investors, and residents of Belize cheered the recent news from Air Canada that the world’s eighth-largest airline will be adding a new non-stop route from Toronto to Belize City beginning on December 15, 2017. Rival Westjet has been flying non-stop from Toronto to Belize City since October 2016, and Canadian retirees and investors in Belize can now expect to enjoy lower ticket prices as competition heats up to serve the growing Belize travel market.

The only English speaking country in Central America, Belize still has a number of prime property options available at affordable prices. In the past five years, Belize has seen continuous growth in the number of investors and visitors, and now all four of America’s biggest airlines fly non-stop to Belize from major cities across the United States. Belize is also a local transportation hub in the region with multiple connections to other countries in Central America.

Belize has a stable, peaceful democracy with a very welcoming environment for Canadians and other foreigners. The QRP program allows qualifying individuals age 45 and older along with their families to gain permanent residency in Belize with no tax assessed on imported personal items (including vehicles) or income earned outside the country.

A Caribbean nation in both lifestyle and geography, Belize has more than 200 miles of coastline and hundreds of islands along the second-largest barrier reef in the world. Home to world-class snorkeling, fishing, diving, and sailing opportunities, Belize enjoys year-round warm weather and abundant sunshine. The mainland is a rich mix of pristine rainforest, lush jungle, verdant mountains, fertile plains, wetlands, rivers, and mangrove-lined lagoons.

The most popular location for Canadian and other expat retirees is the Corozal District in Belize. Located just across the sparkling waters of the Chetumal Bay from the vacation hotspot of Ambergris Caye, Corozal maintains the perfect balance between town life and unspoiled nature. The capital of Corozal District has a library, two churches, and many lovely sidewalk cafes that serve up locally-grown coffee and a rich bevy of fresh, delicious food.

Another advantage of living in Corozal District is its proximity to the border town of Chetumal in Mexico. With familiar low-cost retailers like Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club, shopping in Chetumal allows residents of Corozal to enjoy their hard-earned money.
